Uncle Bill saw it coming
Fresh off of the UIC shows, this was our midwestern boy's first trip to the Golden State. Boy were we surprised when the "orch" on our tickets meant orhestra pit and not orchard as we had imagined. 17th row - ba blam! My 10th show, they all sounded great at this point, but what stands out in my warpy memory of this night was the irreverence of so many local LA and Santa Cruz kids this night and the buzz that they were going to jump the fence up in Lion Country at the start of the first set. And they did. What seemed like thousands of people flooded in as the first set went on. Bill Graham was so pissed, I remember him smashing full beer bottles and scolding all of us as we left the show, maybe he thoght I was part of the problem becaues of my age. Then he cleared the parking lot, no more lot camping! I watched this irreverence flow eastward over the next few years and I myself got labled a "Touch Head" because of it. Fittingly, my 87th and last show was Deer Creek 95 when the riot occured, fence was torn down, and the next night was cancelled. In between I experienced a great deal of the old magic that was a genuine GD experience. The magic is alive in these old downloads, each one sparking memories long forgotten. Thanks to all who take the time and energy to post these rare and different tunes for all of us!

A better show than 4/18, but nothing that you can't find better versions of in either Chi-town or East Coast
1st Set: This evening gets off to a stronger start than last with the always agreeable ripsnorter "Hell." "Sugaree" & "Uncle" features a tighter, more insistent focused band than last night. The same can said for "Mexicali." You know, maybe it's the mix that's more evenly portioned off between the band members. Maybe it's that the rhythm section is just more on their game this Saturday night. Maybe it stems from Mcikey's guilt of playing 'frivolous' music on the eve of the Jewish Sabbath. Well, my my, of course we're getting the whole album, but isn't this appropriate, Not?! Irvine is so the opposite of West Hollywood... in the heart of Republican Orange County. Anyways, the version's solid. Do we need a "Far From Me" every run? Granted, it's a hell of a lot easier to swallow than "Easy to Love You," but Brent's songwriting presence really didn't matter til he wrote I Will Take' and 'Little Light.' "Row" is gorgeous. Again, there's a determined feel to the show to correct the errors from the precvious evening. It's rather depersonalized, but a pleasure to listen to. We'll wait a couple minutes for the techs to fix Billy's broken snare drum, hear an unnamed ditty or two, and move onto "Let(ting)It Grow." It's not emotionally reinvigorating like the breezy "Don't Ease" is... but it's prime sirloin to finish out this above-average set of 1st set music.
2nd Set: Admittedly, I'm all "Iko'd" out this tour. They're playing it in every city when it shoul be saved for every two cities. Nevertheless, this is a lively version. Playin' is positively cluttered, but too short to develop a cohesive story. "Terrapin" is competently played with some verve appearing near the end, but Jerry's back to croak-central. "Drums" is standard but Space starts me on the track towards some quality epileptic seizures. "Gimme" gets me pumped for some quality rocking which is not found in the decent but neuetered "Dew." "Throwing" is too standard to stand-out. "Lovelight" is a healthy perky choice filled with some nice minor bluesy work by Jerry. It's no blockbuster tho.
Again, the encore selection is missing on this tape :(
A three and 1/4 rated show... the 1st set is quite strong but the show enters run of the mill, good ol GD by the end.

The lineage "Master Soundboard Casette > PCM> DAT> CDR" is deceiving. This a matrix, and not a very good one at that.

Heads Up: The tracks on D2 exceed 80 minutes. I placed the 2nd set opener at the tail end of D1.
